Day 484: ugh clay

Day 484:

Remember all that clay I was harvesting from the river? The good news is it packs really well. The bad news is it’s really really wet, even now, weeks later. (Probably doesn’t help that I’ve been storing it in a wooden barrel.)

I’m trying to figure out how to pack the frame I built with clay to make the rails without getting it filled with air bubbles, and all I can come up with is soaking it some more and then shaking it.

This is going to take days.
